Ulcertive Proctitis

Posted by

I an 24 years old. I have been seeing a gastroenterologist for the last 1 1/2 years. My symptoms are blood in my stool,gas,mucas in my stool, the urge to go to the bathroom quite often, and even if I don't defecate, I will still pass blood. The first time I saw her she ordered a colonoscopy. After the colonoscopy she diagnosed me with Ulcertive Proctitis. The first treatment she had me try was a rowasa enema and asacol. That didn't work. The second method she had me try was asacol,prednisone and fiber. That worked for about 4 months. I was continuing to take asacol with no symptoms. I had a relapse. She put me back on prednisone,asacol, and fiber. That didn't work this time. So she I have been on asacol and imuran for the last 2 1/2 months. It is not working either. She has now referred me to a surgeon. I have an appointment scheduled with him the end of November. Any feedback you could give me would be great.
Thanks!

Hi, Jana.

Ulcerative Proctitis is the first step toward Ulcerative Colitis.

These are far advanced from their cause: LGS (leaky gut syndrome).

Until you understand this concept and get rid of it, "This is as good as it gets!"

Go to the home page, the glossary and the archives. Surely a few hours of learning would be worth what you are facing and what you will face if you do not go beyond your docs.

Let us know what you learn.

To quickly get symptoms under control, try butyrate enemas. They can be ordered from Hopewell Pharmacy. Did your doctor say how he/she thinks this happened?
